Rewind! Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I don’t know what the weather is like right now where you are, but here it is COLD.
I’m talking -26 degrees C cold.  Freeze your butt off cold.
But, call me crazy, I love this kind of winter weather in January…
It makes me feel like baking and nesting!
So how about a cookie recipe to beat the cold weather!
Nothing like cookies to make a house cozy!
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

 

This recipe is out from the archives…they are so good they needed another post!  😉

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional: I leave this out. I hate nutmeg.)
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup raisins, chopped
  • 3 1/2 cups oats (old fashioned rolled oats)

Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt & cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time. Combine until creamy and smooth.
  4. Add vanilla.
  5. Add the flour mix to the butter mix. Combine.
  6. Add the oats.
  7. Add the chopped raisins.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 6-9 minutes. The less time baking, the softer the cookie.

Tips!
  • If you have raisins around that have seen better days (that is, if they are kind of old and really dried out), you can boil them in a little bit of water for about 1-2 minutes.  Set them aside to cool, then drain the water.  Chop them up and proceed with the recipe.
  • This recipe works best with old fashioned rolled oats.  I have used instant oats and they turned out well too.  Cookies with the old fashioned oats make a chunkier cookie, and cookies with the instant oats make a more chewy cookie.
  • You can add chocolate chips to this recipe if you wish!

 

Chewy.  Soft.  Sweet.  Yummy.
Stay warm!

    Good thing to be doing inside when it is so cold out, brrr. However the Sun is out in full force which is such a wonderful bonus.
